I found this board looking for advice. I took my quilt to a long arm quilter that my LQS recommended and Idid know the gal. Her quilts were spectacular. When I got the quilt back I saw lots of problems. The advice here was to show her the problems, it was largely a tension issue with her machine showing the bobbin thread. Besides the tension issues I was happy (note I don't say in love) with the quilting.
She apologized profusely and redid it. I finally got it back and she didn't quilt it the same. Makes me even less happy then I was before. This is one of my favorite tops I have done and now with the quilting I just don't love it anymore. Its just an OK quilt.
I have seen some of the beautiful long arm work displayed on this board. So here's my question - do I rip it all out, find the money, and have it redone by someone else? Or just deal with it?
